The Lindbergs' got everything for CNY!

We have received our January box and are now totally prepared to celebrate the Chinese New Year! There was everything: several kinds of beautiful red envelopes, CNY stamps, six red silk table mats with matching napkins and chop sticks and a beautiful lantern/ceiling decoration. Oh, and there was food: dried mango, sugar ginger and honey glazed walnuts. Yummy! There were also the most adorable earrings and four inredibly cute rice bowls with cats on them. I love small bowls like that - I use them for everything! As always there was a very nice card for us and for the cats there was a bag of catnip. They could smell it even before I opened the box! (See picture below.)

Signe can smell the catnip!

Beautiful ceiling decoration in our living room.

Appleton's Secret Pals Rock With the Year of the "Mouse" Goodies!

What in the world would we do without our Secret Pals????? Today we got a package from them and they had gone above and beyond anything we expected. The theme was Chinese New Year Goodies and since 2008 is the Year of the Rat (Mouse), we wondered what they might find. We NEVER thought about MICKY MOUSE! hahahahahahahahahaha What a cool idea!'s the goody list:
1. A Micky Mouse dress with a crinolin slip underneath (VERY PRECIOUS!!!)
2. A Micky/Minnie Mouse red pajama with footies! (Soft and warm!)
3. A Pink Minnie MOuse pajama with footies! (Again, soft and cozy!)
4. Micky Mouse post it notes
5. Micky Mouse gel pens
6. Old fashioned Micky storybook
7. Old fashioned Micky coloring book
8. Micky Mouse traveling mug (GREAT for my hot cocoa in the morning on the way to work!)
9. A BEAUTIFUL Chinese New Year card with a personal message from our wonderfully supportive Secret Pals!
You guys ROCK! Have we told you that lately? Thanks sooooooooooooooo much! You always are so creative with our gifts and pick out the best stuff!!!!!!

Woo hoo! Lots of fun stuff from Cathy's pal!

Once again thank you to my awesome secret pal! Take a look at this beautiful red Chinese dress. It is just gorgeous. Dh and I were talking that we may use it for a christening dress, if it fits at the right time. I want to use a red dress, since that is the color of celebration! We also received a Ratatouille stuffed rat!!! LOL! We love it! Perfect for the Year of the Rat! We also received a couple of adorable books, Baby Animals (touch & feel, which of course we went through ourselves already lol), and Mama Loves You, so sweet! And to round out a great selection of items, a box of lovely red notecards, which is perfect because I just ran out. Thank you so much for everything, we love it all. And thanks for being a great pal! Love, Cathy
